Grass Valley, CA — What started out as a girl’s night out Botox party ended badly when a first time General Practitioner failed to administer the doses correctly.

I had it all put together,” said Lisa Fellows who hosted the party at her friend’s house in Grass Valley. “I had the required 6 person headcount, and I found a doctor who said he knew what he was doing. Come to find out, it was his first time doing the Botox thing.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, most experts recommend having cosmetic procedures, including Botox injections, in a doctor’s office. Botox Cosmetic, a form of botulinum toxin type A that’s used to improve facial wrinkles and is often referred to as simply Botox, should be used only under a doctor’s care. A Botox party is a social gathering at which Botox injections are given, often in a person’s home typically with alcohol and other party favors.

Although no one was hurt, many of the participants do have some facial disfigurements that will probably last a few months, after which the toxin wears off.

“I just wanted my lips a little more puffy,” said Laurie Givens of Grass Valley. “And they got a little too puffy. But I think I can live with it. It only looks a little too big from the side. So I’ll just make sure to greet people face-on.”

As for Ms. Fellows, she’s not sure she’s going to host another Botox party.

“I just need to stick to things I understand, like avoiding vaccines,” said a somewhat resigned Ms. Fellows. “But who knows, if the girls want to do it again, I guess I’ll organize it.”

The discovery challenges everything we thought we knew about the man who lived on the edge of American sanity.
